Of Mount Cyllene
KYLLENE (Cyllene) was an Oreiad-nymph of Mount Kyllene (Cyllene) in Arkadia (southern Greece). She was the wife of Pelasgos (Pelasgus), the first king of Arkadia who lived in the days before the Great Deluge.
Kyllene was perhaps identified with Meliboia, the wife of Pelasgos in other accounts.
